    3.0 out of 5 stars Because I love English village mysteries... 20 Mar. 2007
    By Caroline Spencer - Published on
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I continue to read this series. I picked up Murder on Monday and enjoyed it enough to read Terror on Tuesday. There was something about 'Tuesday' that bored me, but I'd already ordered Weeping on Wednesday, so...After the disappointment of 'Tuesday', I was pleasantly surprised by Wednesday. The romantic thought of living in an old mill peaked my interest and the family that lived in it did too. I do wish Ms. Purser would include more descriptive passages to help the reader feel as though he's there, enjoying the sounds and smells of the village. My interest was captured by the anxious-on-the-inside, prim-on-the-outside spinster, Enid Abraham, whom I immediately liked. In fact, it would be a great idea if Ms. Purser moved Lois and family out of the village and allowed Enid to play sleuth. She has the tenacity and intestinal fortitude it takes to dive into a criminal investigation. The plot, what plot the story contained, was familiar yet still enjoyable. I wasn't bothered by the simple plot, but I have to confess that I don't care for the series' main character, Lois Meade. She's often rude, allows her gem of a mother, 'Gran' to do most of the caretaking of the family (Lucky Lois), and snips at her husband Derek. Lois annoys me in that she can't decided if something is "interesting" or "interestin'". Since my own grammar is imperfect, I don't mind a dropped 'g' at all, but I do wonder why Lois's grammar goes downhill when she speaks with Inspector Cowgill. Does he intimidate her or does she want to appear to him as the cleaning lady she was instead of the owner of a cleaning business that she is? Whichever, I'd like for their relationship to be a bit more defined. Do they have a secret hankering for each other or is the author just teasing us to add another facet to the characters? I have another confession to make - I'm several pages into 'Thursday' and I'm enjoying it, but if Derek calls Lois 'gel' or 'me ducks' one more time, I think I'll pitch the book right out the window the same way someone's pitching the calendar pages out the windows on the covers of the gel's books.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Read About Interesting People 12 Mar. 2005
    By Donna Johnson - Published on
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    If looking for a fun series about people that you will get to know and care about, this is the book. Lois is tough, funny, and extremely loyal. The story line in all the Lois Meade books is entertaining and will keep you wondering what will happen next, but Weeping on Wednesday was the best. Can't wait for the Thursday book.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Neat & Tidy Cozy 1 Sept. 2012
    By Jean B - Published on
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Enjoyable story in the Lois Meade Mystery series. Well written, with believable characters and situations. Although the 'mystery' was not particularly complicated, it was well presented and neatly resolved.* I enjoy Lois and her family, and the interactions. And I enjoy the charm of being immmersed in the culture of English countryside life. (although I could use a glossary from time to time)
    *(I don't much care for light mystery stories where the author thinks it is necessary to throw in implausible twists or blatant red herrings - or continually put the hero/heroine in peril.)
    This series is not guilty of that.
    I look forward to the rest of the week, by Ann Purser.

    5.0 out of 5 stars No weeping for this author! 24 Feb. 2006
    By M. Dormer - Published on
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    A new series for me and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Well written, with characters strong and believable. Ms. Purser tells a story, gets you interested in the people, places and events and then wraps it all up very satisfactorily, never leaving you hanging about unsolved events. Have the next installment on order!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Cozy, Charming, and English 27 Feb. 2008
    By Andrea - Published on
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    "Weeping on Wednesday" is a lovely, cozy book that takes place in England. It portrays a dainty and quaint life in a charming English village, with a rural touch. You can almost see an English garden and smell freesias.

    Lois Meade, the main character, is the supervisor of a cleaning service that she started. One of her recently-hired cleaners is a bit mysterious if not eccentric. There is a mystery surrounding this woman's family. We don't know if the woman is involved in something shady or if she is just an innocent bystander. But by the end of book, all questions and curiosities are answered.

    This English series is one of my favorite cozy series. It is interesting to "visit" England, have teas, go to pubs, sit in an English garden. Some of the words they use are different than the words we use. But not so many that you can't understand what they are saying - only enough to make it more interesting.
